This game feels like its on autopilot

I'm trying pretty hard to enjoy this game, but so far I've just been annoyed with out many forced NPC encounters there are. The one section where you have to make a movie with your pokemon felt like for a good 5 minutes I couldn't move my character around manually. I can't take 10 steps it seems like without someone coming up to me and talking to me.

It's pokemon. You are hand-holded through the parts you need to be hand-holded (tutorials, first times, bare-bones stuff), and left on your own for the challenging/cheap stuff.

You mean handheld.

Pokestar Studios is the only time I took offense to this. While I do somewhat enjoy the uniqueness that Pokestar Studios has to offer, I shouldn't be forced to do it every time I start a new game.

Everything else, though, is fine. It's to be expected of a nintendo game, let alone a pokemon game, to pretty much have your way guided through via other npcs. And I quite liked the whole Driftveil Tournament thing, its both fun and understandable on why you're forced to participate, as it's there that you really first get Colress' attention.

That said, one of these days Gamefreak is going to troll me by making it so that when I inevitably say "No" to all of the initial "Do you want a pokemon?" and "Do you want a pokedex?" questions the NPC will say "Fine, I'll take my business elsewhere" and I'll be presented with a big Game Over screen.

yeah, sorry. English not first language, so slips occasionally happen .

This would be a pretty neat thing to add in. And it shouldn't take too much on the part of coding too...

Speaking of which, what's the usual level for it?

It auto-levels your pokemon. I believe Driftveil is level 25, while all the other tourneys are 50.

Well mine were at 25 for it, so I didn't notice any auto levelling. Thanks for the clarification.

Even better if they gave you an alternative to getting your fist one.
